Library Science Courses
This course teaches students information and digital literacy skills applicable to college success, professional workplace and personal life experiences. Students consider how cultural, social, economic, political, legal and ethical issues influence how we search for, create, access, organize, disseminate and use information. Students will use critical thinking and problem solving skills to research and analyze information sources such as online databases, traditional library resources, websites, and digital media, to create and communicate information with collaborative technologies.
